Dr. Allison Lee, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I am committed to helping people address symptoms and difficulties compassionately and in ways that are tailored to the individual. I will listen carefully to you and make every effort to understand your unique preferences and needs. I have expertise in both psychotherapy and medication treatments and I will work with you to find the treatment plan that suits you best. My aim in psychotherapy is to help individuals relieve painful symptoms, achieve emotional freedom, and improve interpersonal relationships. I have a certificate in Psychoanalysis from the William Alanson White Institute. I have also been trained in Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral and Supportive styles of psychotherapy. In addition to private practice, I worked as a clinician-researcher at the Family Center for Bipolar at Beth Israel for 5 years. This work gives me unique experience in treating bipolar disorder and working with families. I am passionate about helping people overcome barriers to achieving health-related goals, while also abiding by the Health At Every Size philosophy. I am knowledgeable about ancestral health approaches to diet and lifestyle. I also have an interest in the relationship between mental health, technology, and "geek" culture.

She took the time to go over my history thoroughly and included me in treatment decisions. I also didn't get that standoffish vibe you get from a lot of psychiatrists, you can tell she actually cares.

She is empathetic and supportive, but doesn't hesitate to be frank and straightforward when necessary. I get the sense that nothing surprises her anymore. This is a wonderful quality in a psychiatrist. I would recommend her to anyone.
